Redmi K40 series to launch on February 25 in China
The company also confirmed the previous leaks by revealing the camera module design
Well, now it’s official! The Redmi K40 series is set to go official in the Chinese market on the 25th of February which means there is now less than a week left for the launch. We have already seen the design of the K40, thanks to the TENAA listing. But today, Redmi shared another teaser that shows the camera module on the rear and it once again confirms the leaks so far. Redmi also confirmed Snapdragon 888 SOC for the higher end variant.
As we can see, the Redmi K40 series has a rectangular camera module having three cameras in it. There are two main lenses and between those is a tiny sensor placed alongside the microphone. The camera module doesn’t reveal the Megapixel count but going by the previous leaks, both K40 and K40 Pro have a 108 Megapixel primary sensor. Another teaser reveals that there is Snapdragon 888 but we know that only the K40 Pro has it as the regular K40 features the Snapdragon 870.
Redmi hasn’t yet shared other specs but as per leaks, both the phones have 6.81-inch Quad-HD+ OLED panels & 30 Megapixel selfie shooters. K40 Pro has a 13 Megapixel secondary rear camera while the K40 has an 8 Megapixel sensor. The rest of the cameras are the same. There is also a difference in the battery size. The vanilla K40 has a 4,500mAh battery whereas the K40 Pro has a 5,000mAh cell. Of course, these are all leaked specs so we cannot be 100% sure if they are legit.
Redmi has already revealed that the starting price will be 2,999 Yuan in China but we wonder if that’s for the vanilla K40 or the K40 Pro.
